Batman vs Superman: Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor Bald in Upcoming Movie?

November 16, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Lex Luthor will become bald at some point in Batman v Superman, according to a new report.

Jesse Eisenberg is portraying the iconic character in the follow-up to Man of Steel.

Eisenberg started off filming with loose and wavy dirty blonde hair.

But recent pictures of the actor indicate that Luthor will turn bald at some point in the movie, which just finished filming in Illinois and is moving to New Mexico.

“New photos taken of Eisenberg earlier this week suggest that he will lose his hair and have that classic bald Lex Luthor look at some point in the movie,” noted Batman News.

“You can clearly see that Eisenberg has shaved his head, and it’s very likely that it was for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

Few plot spoilers have emerged in regards to Luthor’s role in the film, but fans speculated after the pictures emerged that Luthor would become bald due to having cancer.

That theory would fit with Eisenberg’s noticeable weight loss since he started filming for the movie.

Meanwhile, original Batman Adam West recently told Ben Affleck, who will play Batman in the upcoming movie, that he’ll be fine.

“Ben, you’re going to be very good,” he said, reported the Express.

“Shave the beard, make that costume work for you.”

Batman v Superman is also starring Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

The movie, which also stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Russell Crowe, is set to hit theaters on March 25, 2016.
